Best Birthday present ever!

Postby ShootnMathews » Thu Apr 09, 2015 4:07 pm

It's not quite my birthday yet, but I've been looking at different "small" size concealed carry pistols for when I want something either easy to grab, or something for when I'm not wearing much, like shorts and tank top in the summer. So anyways my wife shows up today after work, hands me a box and says "happy early birthday" I opened the box to see, a Ruger LCP .380!!!! :wt*: :P Happy boy right here I tell you. We both shot it some. It shoots great. Way more accurate than I expected for a barrel that looks to be 1.25" long. I can keep every shot in a milk jug at 20 yards. I didn't measure, but it looked like I actually shot about a 4" group with it. Anyways, here it is.......

The recoil is more than I expected. Certainly manageable, but it's a tight squeeze to get 3 fingers on the grip. Really the middle finger is taking the brunt on the recoil. But again, it's manageable, just more than I thought it would be. My neighbor has one and brags all the time about how accurate his is. Which I originally had my doubts, but no more. I am not an expert shot with a pistol by no means, but I believe this pistol is at least as accurate as I am.

Cool deal. That's a better birthday present than anyone ever got me. let alone my wife. But tell her I said that...

Thanks. Jay

Far surpasses the next best. But it's the thought that counts.

BTW those are my wife's pink nails. LOL
